Reviewing the situation Lyrics

Reviewing the situation by Oliver  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Reviewing the situation A mans got a heart,
Hasn't he?
Joking apart,
Hasn't he?

And though I'd be the first one to say that
I wasn't a saint

I'm finding it hard to be
really as black as they paint

I'm Reviewing,
The Situation
Can a fellow be a villan all his life?
All the trials and tribulations
Better settle down and get myself a wife.

And the wife would cook and sew for me
and come for me and go for me
And go for me and nag at me
the fingers she would wag at me
The money she would take for me
The misery she'd make from me

I think I'd better think it out again...

A wife you can keep
anyway
I'd rather sleep
anyway

Left without anyone in the world
and I'm starting from now

So how to win friends and to influence people
so how?

I'm Reviewing,
The Situation
I must quickly look up everyone I know
Title people - with a station
Who can help me make a real impressive show

I will own a suite at Claridges
and run a fleet of carridges
and wave at all the dutchesses
with friendlyness as much as is
beffitting of my new estate
Good morrow to you, Madgistrate!

I think I'd better think it out again

So where shall I go
somebody
Who do I know
nobody.

All my dearest companions have always been villans and theives
So at my time of life I should start turning over new leaves

I'm Reviewing,
The Situation
If you want to eat youve got to earn a bob
Is it such a humilliation

for a robber to perform an honest job
So a job I'm getting possibly
I wonder who the boss will be
I wonder if he'll take to me
What bonuses he'll make to me

I'll start at eight and finish late
At normal rate and all but wait-

I think I better think it out again
I think I better think it out again

What happens when I'm Seventy
Must come a time,
seventy

When you're old and its cold
and who cares if you live or you die

Youre one consolation's
the money you may have put by

I'm Reviewing,
The Situation
I'm a bad one and a bad one
I shall stay

Youve be seeing, no transformation
But its wrong to be a rogue in every way

I dont want nobody hurt for me
or made to do the dirt for me
This rotten life is not for me
Its getting far too hott for me

There is no in between for me
but who will change the scene for me
Don't want no one to rob for me
But who will find a job for me?!

I think I'd better think it out again!
